Rose tinted...

Here is a card made using one of the flower stamps from the Flower Fairies "Rose" collection.
I used Versa Fine to stamp it onto some handmade paper & then water coloured it using Sakura Glaze pens. I like using water colour on this paper as you obtain a natural buckling of the paper which adds to the depth of the image. I then inked the edges & layered onto a piece of white card using a few spots of silicone so as not to lose the buckling effect & again inked the edges. Using another darker shade of handmade paper I inked the edges & wrapped some ribbon around before attaching to a white base card. To finish it all off I again used a Sakura Glaze pen for some faux stitching, added some card candy & the sentiment was originally a handbag but I had to chop the handle off... wanted to use a round tag but I've used all my white sentiments & only had cream left so had to improvise.

I'm off to tidy up some more crafting goodies as they are scattered around the office at the present so want to get organised then hopefully I'll have time to come back later with another little something... also have to fit in some more blog hopping as I'm so behind with all the crap that's been happening.
Hope you're all having a fab weekend.
